Summary
The inspirational bestseller that ignited a movement and asked us to find our WHY

Discover the book that is captivating millions on TikTok and that served as the basis for one of the most popular TED Talks of all time—with more than 56 million views and counting. Over a decade ago, Simon Sinek started a movement that inspired millions to demand purpose at work, to ask what was the WHY of their organization. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, and these ideas remain as relevant and timely as ever.
 
START WITH WHY asks (and answers) the questions: why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?
 
People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it. 
 
START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who have had the greatest influence in the world all think, act and communicate the same way—and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.

Great read. I enjoyed and understood the importance of leadinpg with a root cause of your WHY. The book discussed how leading with WHY changes the outcome and how others perceive and interact with you or your product.The book It also touched on the importance of always reflecting on your why at all times to maintain and drive clear focus. The reader is left to pinpoint/identify what their why is. and allow that to be the driving force.

Not much to add besides what was said on the 7 minute video on youtube.

Very inspiring and great insight. Especially great because the narrator was the writer himself. However, some of the examples of companies were repeated redundantly. Would've been more immersive if there were a wider range of aspects covered.

A very common theme, but still very well written and digging deep enough for it to be thought provoking

I'm listening to this in 2023. Underlying message is definitely valuable and worth remembering, but unfortunately it's padded with more anecdotal rather than factual fluff leaning heavily into examples relevant to late 90's and 00's that in the current world feel dated. In contrast with books such as Dale Carnegie's 'How to win friends and influence people' that was published in 1936 and still feels timeless, this book does a poor job of explaining it's ideas in a way that's relatable to everyone. I recommend instead finding a summary or short explanation of the book.

I loved it and i recommend it for everyone to listen to discover how much rely upon himself is an awful mistake. then attractive other people as friends to know about them is still much better.

It’s not that I didn’t like the message. I liked that but I really think the book was repetitive and he could’ve said the same thing in like an hour.

Great read. I loved the real world examples to explain the concept and reasoning of starting with “why “. It gave me some excellent ideas on how to apply it to myself and my profession.
